I'm in a similar situation where I am hooking up a TiVo Premiere, Panasonic Blu-Ray player, and a LG 47LH90 TV to an old Bose Lifestyle 5 Music Center. After reviewing all of my connectivity options, I've come to settle on the fact that my TiVo will connect via the "Video" input on the Music Center (via red/white RCA). The Blu-Ray player will connect to the "AUX" input on the Music Center. And I'll just have to switch between Video and AUX modes for what I'm watching at the time.
You need a scart junction box this is a device that allows you to connect more than 2 devices together but you may find that the tivo will be affected by the cable box hope not but it might .. Regards Vortash
I believe that you are already on the right path, your tivo will still be assuming that you are running off the cable box plus you watch dancing with the stars for five minutes one time just to see Warren Sapp attempt to dance and now all of a sudden it wants to record every single piece of televison with dance in the title or discription, but I'm not bitter.
Just re-accomplish the set up and let it know that you are no longer running a cable box. Also tell it that ditching you friday night to hang with it's old high school buddies was so not cool.
Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.
You can still hook the two up together, though.
What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this: Split the cable coming out of the cable box. Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo. Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.
This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.
Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.
Use the RCA connections of your TV to hook up the DVD/VCR, connect the "VIDEO OUT" of your TV to the "VIDEO IN" of the VCR and "VIDEO OUT" from your VCR to one of the video inputs of your TV. You need the double connection in case you want to record something to a VHS, otherwise, just hook up a cable from "Video OUT" of the VCR to any of the "Video IN" inputs of your TV.
